If there’s anything I love more than beauty, it’s FASHION. I remember when I was a little girl, I could only get a new pair of shoes if I threw an old pair away. It always drove me crazy – why can’t an itty bitty girl have countless pairs of shoes?
My solution was to toss an old pair in the way back of my closet and tell my parents I had thrown them away. Worked like a charm, every time.
I have more pairs of shoes than I honestly know what to do with. Some people collect coins. Some people collect stamps. I collect shoes.
Everyone has their thing… right?
Spring is my favorite time to go shoe shopping. In fact, spring has always been a huge inspiration for me. For my admission portfolio to FIDM, I designed a whole line around spring. Everything is pastel, and floral, and lacy, and TO DIEEE FOR.
By far, my favorite shoe for spring is a nude heel. There’s so many different styles and shades of “nude” and outfits that they can be worn with. SWOON.
Here are a few of my favorites (nude and colorful) that spring can’t be without:
Pavia Pump – Okay, so, these aren’t nude, but they are SO cute. I bought these recently because I love how different they are. You could wear these with a dress to date night, or with jeans to brunch. They’re so versatile and surprisingly, really comfortable.
Callista Geometric Pump (in Floral Leather) – Everything about this pair screams, “SPRING IS THE BEST!!” I’m a total sucker for anything Vince Camuto, so when I saw these on the sale rack (80% off, hello!), I wasn’t leaving without them. And I’m so glad I made that decision.
Ledina Sandal (in Nude Suede) – YES for nude sandals. These were also a recent purchase for me, and I’m so obsessed. I halfway dressed them up with black skinny jeans, a black off-the-shoulder top, and a french braid, and let me tell you – they MADE the outfit. I could’ve worn them all night, and the ties in the back are totally the cherry on top.
Loriah Sandal (in Taupe) – Admittedly, I wanted these in Burnt Orange, but they were out of stock, so I “settled” for Taupe and have zero regrets. These are completely on-trend right now but are also timeless. While I do enjoy trends, I really prefer something that I know I can wear year after year. These are that.
Neo Courtset Sneaker (in Blush) – Who knew Adidas were coming back into style? I bought these a few weeks ago and love them. I have weird-shaped feet – high arches, wide toe bed – so shoes are either a hit or miss (typically right away). These felt like a miss when I first put them on, but on my walk to work, I realized they were totally a hit. I’ll be wearing these for a LONG time.
Cigola Flat (in Blush) – I really wanted these to work for me, but they didn’t. Remember that weird-foot-thing I have? Yea, sigh. But these are perfect for spring, and I’m sure will serve a lot of people well.
Larise Bootie (in Tan) – Last but not least. These aren’t quite my style (right now), but I’m hoping they will be soon because I see them on people all the time and fall in love. I love the perforations and the cute split mid-foot.
Hope you all enjoyed this week’s Fashion Wednesday post!
